Letter to the editor: Methodists battle homosexual issues


The Rev. Karen Oliveto is the pastor of a United Methodist Church (UMC) in Colorado.  However, she is also a self-avowed practicing lesbian married to another lesbian – and she now has been consecrated as Bishop of the UMC Mountain Sky Area, which includes churches in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and Montana, as well as one […]

Letter to the editor: Letter to the President


Every Christian needs to send this reminder to President Donald Trump: Dear Mr. President, You promised to stop the flow of taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood. You promised to rescind the Johnson Amendment in order to give church pastors more freedom to speak from the pulpit. You promised to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel […]

Letter to the editor: Pharmaceutical drug problem grows


One reason for the drug crisis in America is the fact that pharmaceutical drugs are too easy to obtain.  We are bombarded with media commercials for pharmaceutical drugs that can be delivered right to your front door. Every day we see a barrage of commercials on television, radio, the Internet and in magazines and newspapers […]

Letter to the editor: Embassy in Jerusalem


I call on all of you to urge President Trump to move forward on his campaign promise to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  This move was approved in the “Jerusalem Embassy Act” passed by Congress in 1995. But since the act was passed, every U.S. president – Bill Clinton, […]

Letter to the editor: Bible says that building a wall is OK


There is nothing wrong with building a wall and providing a secure gate to protect American citizens.  God has a gate around Heaven. Here’s what Jesus said, “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is […]

Letter to the editor: We should support President Trump


President Trump signed an executive order on January 27 putting an immediate freeze on immigration from seven countries: Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Iraq and Sudan.  This temporary immigration freeze is similar to one former-President Obama issued in 2011 against these same countries. It is interesting to note how quickly demonstrators showed up with protest […]

Letter to the editor: Jerusalem, the capitol of Israel


President-elect Donald Trump’s team is moving forward on plans to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel out of Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. And that is causing Barack Obama, John Kerry, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, the United Nations and most European leaders to pull their hair out. Obama and Kerry are finally showing their true “anti-Israel” […]

Letter to the editor: More freedom in the pulpit


President-elect Donald Trump has promised to rescind the Johnson Amendment in order to give church pastors more freedom to speak from the pulpit. The Johnson Amendment refers to a change in the U.S. tax code made in 1954, initiated by former President and Senator Lyndon Johnson, D-Texas, which prohibits certain tax-exempt organizations from endorsing and […]

Letter to the editor: Jimmy Carter vs. Nation of Israel


Former President Jimmy Carter is encouraging President Obama to “grant American diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine” before Obama leaves office on January 20, 2016. Israel adamantly opposes such a move – and so should every person who believes God’s Word is true.  The land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem must not […]

Letter to the editor: Stop abortion to save the United States


Stopping abortion is the most important thing we must do to save this nation.  God gave us this great election victory because we made a promise to answer the cry of those innocent, defenseless children (59.6 million) who have been murdered in their mother’s womb.  God heard that promise and is giving us an opportunity to stop this barbaric, demonic […]
